VIDEO: 2012: The Gaming Year in Review

Part One:

Part Two:

2012 was… a year in gaming. Just another year. But there was some cool stuff that happened, and this video is about all the games Roland played this year that he didn’t already get a chance to talk about, including Spec Ops: The Line, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Tribes: Ascend, MechWarrior Online, Hawken, Alan Wake (the PC version), and a bunch of indie games.

In part two, Roland talks to his friend Codeknight about a few high profile games that Roland didn’t get around to playing this year. Pretty big spoilers abound for Assassin’s Creed III, Dishonored, X-COM: Enemy Unknown, and Jagged Alliance: Back in Action.

    You’re a little harsher on indie titles than I would be, but you’re sadly spot on for the most part.  So many of them seem to not just be about ART! as opposed to the game, but actively stick it to the player, as if the game begrudges you for playing it.

    • Yeah I’m not the biggest fan of indie games. :) But I will acknowledge that there’s nowhere else to go for innovation.

    Good to see you again Ro.

    What do you think about this year’s upcoming batch of games?

    • I’m hoping they don’t suck! But that’s pretty much what I always do. :)

      Honestly, I haven’t heard of much that excites me yet. ARMA 3, if it’s coming out this year (probably not), and maybe the new Rainbow Six game, since I’ve long been a fan of the franchise. Mainly it comes down to a few problems. First, I’m not a fan of the current batch of consoles. Kinect sucks, Wii U seems pointless and gimmicky. And PC gaming is still going way down hill. 

      Kind of a tough time to be an oldschool gamer.

  • You excited about the stand-alone DayZ game?

    I am confused. In part one you said you liked the ending of “The Line”, then a few seconds later you said none of the endings are good.
